Carmelo Patti Assemblage 2013

Carmelo Patti Assemblage 2013 - 93+ pts Wine Advocate - 47% Cab Sauv, 25% Malbec, 20% Merlot, 8% Cab Franc

Tasting Notes

Feb 2018 - An old school Bordeaux blend from Perdriel in the heart of Lujan de Cuyo. This blend is predominantly Cabernet, compared with other Mendozan blends that are predominantly Malbec. Everything Carmelo done is small batch and hands on. This wine should appeal to Bordeaux enthusiasts with its structure, earth/fruit flavors and elegant mouthfeel. Aged before release, and should continue to age for another 5 years.

93+ pts Wine Advocate Issue #228 Dec 2016
Jumping a few vintages, as the last time I tasted the 2008, the 2013 Gran Assemblage is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot and Cabernet Franc from the same vineyard in Perdriel where the winemaker, year after year, sources the grapes for all his wines. All wines are hand-crafted, the grapes fermented in cement vats with indigenous yeasts. In this case, all the wine is put to mature in oak barrels, whereas most of the others are only partially oaked, yet there are no oak aromas in any of the wines, as the barrels he uses are well-seasoned. It feels very classical, proportioned, aromatic and polished, with character. This also feels ready now. 7,932 bottles produced.
